Android projects share a common set of directories and file names. Learn how to use Android Studio's Project window to find and work with the files you need.
- [Instructor] Android Studio projects…have a specific structure…with standard directory and file names.…You can access the files through the project window…on the left side of your screen…and you can open and close that project window…with the keyboard shortcut…which is cmd+1 on Mac…or ctrl+1 on Windows.…The project window includes multiple scopes.…The project scope shows…your application's files and folders…as they exist on disc,…while the other scopes filter this data in different ways.…
The Android scope only shows you the files and folders…that you typically use the most…while you're doing application development.…I'll go to the project scope…and walk through some of the directories.…The directories that are prefixed with periods…contain configuration files.….Gradle for your gradle plug-in…and .idea for the underlying intellij idea environment.…You won't deal with those directly…while you're doing development.…Under the app directory you'll find source, main…and this is where your code and your resources are…
